THINK ABOUT IT...
Everything you buy either has a positive or negative impact in the world.
Everything has a supply chain, and every supply chain has real people behind it. If the price tag of an item is too low, there’s a high chance someone along the way wasn’t paid or treated fairly. A decade ago, few consumers gave this a second thought, but we’re proud to be one of the pioneers to pave the way for ethical products, and we’re even more excited you’re reading this right now –chances are you wandered on our site because you care too.
We combined our love for people, fashion, design and travel to create accessories and home goods that drive meaningful change in the world. Our products are thoughtfully designed and ethically made. We collaborate with some of the most skilled artisans around the world by providing
them with dignified job opportunities and giving them access to the global market. Paying fair and sustainable wages to our artisans is just the beginning of what we do. We believe in providing safe and joyful working conditions, a family-like atmosphere, and an environment where every artisan feels known. We believe quality work is a result of artisans who are being cared for as individuals. In a nutshell, we believe how your stuff is made matters.
We called the company 31 Bits because Proverbs 31 describes a diligent woman providing and caring for her family using her gifts and talents. Oh, and the “bits” comes from our original and bestselling jewellery that uses beads made out of "bits" of paper!
